Black Skinny Jeans
"Upgrade Your Style With Black Skinny Jeans"
Black skinny jeans are super-trendy and a must in any fashion-conscious woman's closet. I personally love wearing them. I don't know if it's because they slim down my legs and butt, or if it's because black is one of my favorite colors. But I do know that I feel comfortable in them and that they go with absolutely everything else in my wardrobe!
This page will provide you with fashion tips and tricks on how to look great in black skinny jeans and what to pair them with, including recommendations on where to buy these basic womens jeans at affordable prices.
You can also find black skinny jeans in a variety of styles, and not just the plain type. In different washes such as distressed, shredded style, acid wash, faded black, grayish-black and bluish-black and not least with
embellishments like studs and ankle zippers!
How to Look Good in Skinny JeansOne thing many women complain about skinny leg jeans is that they make their butt and hips look big! I totally agree ( I like having a little bit of curves though), but black skinny jeans are different because the color is dark and it'll instantly slim down your lower bottom ;-)
If you're an Inverted Triangle or Apple shape
Be careful with black skinny jeans as they can make you look wider on top because they make your legs and hips look slimmer, highlighting your upper half.
Here are couple of tricks to make it work for your body figure:
If you're a petite or a plus-size figure and want to look taller/slimmer
Avoid wearing high contrasting garments and shoes with the skinnys. Like for example if you choose to wear a white tee with black jeans you'll cut your figure in halves at the hemline, making you look shorter/bigger.
If you absolutely want to wear a white top with the black jeans make sure you top it off with something dark colored like black vest or dark brown cardigan to
streamline your figure. Or add a pair of heels.
If you don't like the feeling of the tapered legs
Opt for straight leg jeans instead! They look exactly like skinnys but they're slightly wider around the calves and might be more comfortable around the ankles on you.
If you have curves then this is the best leg for balancing them out.

What to Wear with Black Skinny JeansYou can pair them with almost anything because they're versatile. Black goes with all of the rainbow's colors and most clothing styles. However, black jeans tend to stir some punk and trendy vibe which you can enhance or downplay with your choice of garments and accessories.
Here are a couple of chic ideas to wear a pair of black skinny jeans:
A laid-back and up-to-date look. In my opinion, a checkered shirt looks better with black skinny than blue jeans because it tones down
the whole country-barnyard vibe ;-)
Wear the shirt loosely with a simple tee underneath it.
A standard garment to wear with black skinny jeans. I particularly like to add a cool print tee or a slightly oversized American Apparel t-shirt with a deep V-neck.
A simple tunic tee also looks great with the skinnys
but to freshen up the look make sure to add a couple of nice accessories in the mix, like for example a pashmina scarf, long pendant necklace or/and a large cocktail ring. In this case, something girly or classy like pearls or a multiple layered necklace - or a bold statement necklace!
Pair them with black or dark brown ankle or knee/thigh high boots. A little bit of heel is a must if you want to look gorgeous on the dance floor or for a hot guy.
However, flat boots are more casual-looking - slouch boots and simple knee high riding boots are chic options.
Peep hole shoes:
They add a feminine and discreet sexy flair to very black and dark jeans - infusing a playful interest to the punk'ish pants.
